KTM Off-Road Racers ready for Finke Desert Race

Posted:

Motorex KTM Off-Road Racers are leaving no stone unturned in their preparation for the 2010 Finke Desert Race with team riders Ben Grabham, Brad Williscroft and new comers Toby Price and Chad Billett spending weeks testing in the area for the four day event.

2009 runner up Brad Williscroft will wear two hats in Finke, as Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing Team Manager, and competitor, as he looks to support his fellow riders and back up his second place podium last year.

Commenting on the official KTM team entry Williscroft said, ‰ÛÏThe boys and I have been travelling up to Alice Springs and testing on the ride to Finke for the past few months to ensure we‰Ûªre all well prepared for the sprint format ahead.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm confident we will succeed, but anything can happen in a desert race of this calibre, so it‰Ûªs all about preparation and being ready for the challenging terrain ahead. I obviously have my own goal to get on the podium racing the KTM 505 SX-F, but at the same time this is a team entry, and I‰Ûªll provide whatever support that is required to help each of the Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing Team riders cross the line safely with a performance based result.

Three time consecutive winner of Finke, and reining number one rider, Ben Grabham is returning with his usual cool, calm persona commenting, ‰ÛÏAll my testing has been going well, I‰Ûªm very familiar with Finke now, and really enjoy coming out here and having some fun pushing the KTM 505 SX-F through the challenging terrain.‰Û
